Ninja Selling
Your Education Committee is looking into the possibility of bringing in the Ninja Selling course to CAR.  This is an expensive venture and they want to ensure that there will be enough interest in it and registrations to warrant bringing an instructor in.
If you would be interested in participating in the 1-day Ninja Selling course for $250, please click here and let Deb know of your interest.  The committee estimates needing 20 members taking the course to make it feasable.
For more information on Ninja Selling, check out the CRS Ninja Selling page.
Calendars still available!
the CAR Store still has several varieties of 2015 calendars available for you!  Each box of 100 comes with envelopes for mailing and we also sell doorknob bags for your door-to-door marketing.
Come on down anytime... The CAR store is open whenever the CAR office is!
More Break Ins in Clarksville Vacant Homes!
Last week an email was sent to you all about break-ins in the Clarksville area focusing on vacant properties, particularly those that are for sale.  These break-ins continue to occure, 2 of which happened last night.  Homes are being broken into, appliances and fixtures stolen and property being vandalized.
If you have not checked on your vacant listings lately, you might want to head on out soon. 
We encourage you to let your sellers know that this is a problem in our market right now and that they should enlist the help of their friends and family in the area to pop in to the homes regularly.  It is recommended by the Clarksville Police Department that these homes are placed on light timers and that residients or friends stop-in to the homes for a bit on a regular basis to give the appearance of occupancy.
You may also want to remove ANY reference on any of your listing info or marketing about the home being vacant.
Our Trade Show!
Mark your calendars for 10;30am next Wednesday, December 17 and come on down to the Wilma Rudolph Event Center for CAR's 2nd ever Trade Show!  Dozens of our Affiliate Partners and local businesses will be there to share with you what they do and how they can help your business.  You will also be able to vote on the best decorated booth again this year.

E&O Insurance Requirement
It's that time for your Errors & Omissions Insurance renewal!  This is a Tennessee law that all actively licensed real estate professionals carry this insurance.  Some firms have contracted with an independent insurance company and the premiums are paid separtately through them but the majority of our members must individually purchase and renew your insurance.  Failure to do so can result in fines imposed by the Real Estate Commission up to and including suspending your license!
Basic policy coverage is $240.00 for a 2 year period of January 1, 2015-December 31, 2016. 
To renew your E&O, visit the RISC websiteYou have until December 31, 2014 at 11:59pm to renew without any penalties.
Submitting Open Houses
Just a friendly reminder... to have your Agent Open House included on the weekly email and on the CAR Agent Open House Calendar, it MUST be submitted on the CAR website!  To ensure consistency and accuracy of information, this is the process that has been adopted and in force for several years.
